    It was great! I didn't think I was going to like it, but we have friends here from out of town, and she wanted me to go with her. She had already seen it in non-3D and wanted to see the 3D version. She said there's no comaparison.

    Man, 3D has come a long way since Jaws 3D, the last 3D movie I saw at the cinema. It really was amazing!

      Hi habee, We're going to see it right after all the kids go back to school, too crowded. But I'm hearing 3-D is the only way to see it! smile

    We saw it last night and it was awesome!

    I have read some complaints about the story, but forget the story! The visuals were outta sight...the floating mountain scenes had my heart rate up!

    I really didn't notice the length either, which is odd for a nearly 3 hour movie.

    I would say, though, that anyone sitting on the fence about the movie should just go see it in 3D...it's worth it.

      Do you still have to wear the colered glasses?

        yup but they are more like sun glasses now not paper. and the movie is like 3 hours I hear but well worth it. :0

      Michael Bay, Roland Emmerich and McG all have the same attitude...


      I'm sorry, I can't give a shite story a pass JUST because it has amazing visuals. That said, it's not THAT much of a shite story...any story by any of the other 3 directors I listed above is worse than that of Avatar (with a couple of exceptions like The Rock and Stargate), but Avatar doesn't come anywhere near the best movie of all-time (or even THE YEAR) for me JUST because it's got incredible visuals.

    Took me a little while to get used to the very fashionable glasses, but it's absolutely amazing in 3D. Now that I see the trailer on TV, there's just no comparison.

    Well, I hate to rain on anyone's parade, but the script was horrible. My friend and I were reciting the next line in the movie to each other long enough that he got up and left. However, I do like good special effects, and I did think that was the saving grace. Glad all you others like it. Means it wasn't a total flop.

    And yes, I'm pretty jaded...Just been through too much the last two years.

      What's up Daniel? Wouldn't consider you jaded. You're usually really positive.

    The script wasn't exactly brilliant, but it was worth the price just for the visuals!

    I loved everything about that movie.

    Watched the 3D version two days ago and my jaw was unhinged. Incredible film. And yes, the storyline/script didn't match the visual artistry but as films go, it suspended my disbelief quite happily for the duration.

    In fact my disbelief remained happily awol for a bit longer than the film lasted. Never a bad thing when you're me big_smile

        The two things I appreciated most about the 3-D: it wasn't just the "throw things at the camera" deal to make the audience duck, it was mostly used to add a sense of depth and reality, and when things DID come leaping off the screen, for the most part it was a natural part of the action. And, two: you didn't have those diffent-color-lense cardboard glasses. When one guy who was considering seeing it asked me today if they still used those same glasses and I told him it was something more like sunglasses with the same color in each lens, he breathed one of the biggest sighs of relief I've ever heard.
